JUDGMENT WITHOUT TRIAL - There are multiple ways in which cases are adjudged without a trial. In fact, a substantial majority of cases are decided prior to trial. An example of such a way is outlined below.

1. Partial Summary Judgment

Partial summary judgment may also be granted by a court. In this instance summary judgment may be granted with respect to certain claims in a lawsuit even when it is not granted with respect to all claims. This tool allows a judge to streamline case proceedings to particular issues that remain contentious or present a genuine issue of material fact for trial.
